How does dogma develop? The course will study the ways in which the Church continuously discovers and liberates ancient reveled truth in new ways from the original Gospel. Beginning with John Henry Newman, the course traces the idea through the early 20th Century Modernist crisis, the Neo-Scholastic reaction, the historically-minded orthodoxy of Blondel, Rousselot, and de Lubac, to the pre-conciliar theology of Rahner, Schillebeeckx and Congar.
